    Regulator on New Grill

    I was gifted a Char-Broil 3 Burner Gas Grill for Father's Day to start my journey in the world of barbecue!

    Unfortunately when I hooked up the regulator to the propane tank, it was leaking not at the connection I screwed in, but in the part that goes into the regulator (brass, see the picture).

    Do you think I should take the whole thing back to Menards? Or get a replacement part through Char-Broil? I'm mostly concerned that the replacement part would be harder to install since it came preinstalled to the bottom part of the grill. https://www.charbroil.com/valve-hose...tor-g3202200w1

    Was it a preassembled grill? Will Menards swap it out or replace it for you if you are not comfortable doing that? Hope it works out, Have aGreat Day.


      No, I assembled it myself.


        you should be able to unscrew the brass fitting and put some pipe dope on it and assemble with no leaks


          Call Menard's first. Perhaps they will have a quick solution for you. If not, call Char-Broil. They will likely send you a replacement part.


            I figured it out! It was NOT my grill, but the propane tank that was having issues. I found this video and it showed the same problem.


            The comments mentioned the O-ring in the propane tank hookup...and mine was not intact. Swapped out the tank at Menards and the grill now works!


              Glad it was the easy fix!
